Bean to Cup – Economical
Average running costs compared over time
Based on drinking two espressos a day over the course of five years, plus the upfront cost of the cheapest relevant Best Buy coffee machine, we’ve calculated that espresso machines (ground coffee machines) actually work out cheapest (£773), followed by bean-to-cup machines (£1,033) and then pod machines (£1,153).
|Cost after 1 year||Cost after 2 years||Cost after 3 years

Over the course of five years, machines that use whole or ground coffee beans work out cheaper because buying beans is a cheaper way, per cup, to enjoy an espresso.
